Overview

Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804-1864), was an American novelist and short story writer. He is seen as a key figure in the development of American literature for his tales of the nation's colonial history. Hawthorne's work belongs to Romanticism, an artistic and intellectual movement characterized by an emphasis on individual freedom from social conventions or political restraints, on human imagination, and on nature in a typically idealized form. He is best-known today for his many short stories (he called them "tales") and his four major romances: The Scarlet Letter (1850), The House of the Seven Gables (1851), The Blithedale Romance (1852) and The Marble Faun (1860).
